FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SACRAMENTO COUNTY — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), Norcal Paving, a joint venture of A. Teichert and Son Inc., and Granite Construction have scheduled temporary lane closures this weekend for the Interstate 5 Corridor Enhancement (FixSac5) Project.
Crews are scheduled to close the northbound left #1 lane from the P street on-ramp to the American River Bridge and the southbound left #1 lane from the American River Bridge to R Street.
Construction work is scheduled to begin 10 p.m. Friday, October 29 through 9 p.m. Saturday, October 30. Crews are scheduled to perform pavement, median, drainage construction and striping work.
Caltrans encourages motorists to use Interstate 80 and U.S. Highway 50 to bypass the work zone. Motorists still wishing to use I-5 Friday through Saturday should expect delays and plan for additional travel time. The speed limit has been reduced to 55 mph through the construction zone 24/7.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) will be patrolling the project site and ticketing motorists who are not adhering to the posted speed limit signs. The closures and speed limit reductions are necessary for the safety of motorists and workers. Please “Be Work Zone Alert” – someone’s loved one is at work.
10 p.m. Friday, October 29 through 9 p.m. Saturday, August 30
Northbound I-5 from P Street to American River Bridge, #1 lane closed
Southbound I-5 from American River Bridge to R Street, #1 lane closed
Nearby residents can expect loud construction noises and commercial truck back-up beeping noises during day and nighttime hours.
Crews constructed sound walls in 2020 and are scheduled to repair 67 lane miles of highway, build 23 miles of carpool lanes, and improve the existing electrical and drainage systems along this corridor.
This $370 million project includes $48.3 million in funding from Senate Bill (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. SB 1 provides $5 billion in transportation funding annually split between the state and local agencies. Road projects progress through construction phases more quickly based on the availability of SB 1 funds, including projects that are partially funded by SB 1. For more information about other transportation projects funded by SB 1, visit RebuildingCA.
For more information on this project text “FixSac5” to 74121 or visit FixSac5. Caltrans encourages the public to follow construction updates on Twitter and Facebook @FixSac5.
The project is expected to be completed by summer 2022.
Work is scheduled to begin as listed but is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/ or materials, and construction-related issues.
